76 new officers sworn into Service at Oxley graduation

Minister for Police and Minister for Corrective Services, the Honourable Mark Ryan MP and Commissioner Stewart today welcomed 76 new police officers to the Queensland Police Service (QPS), in an induction ceremony held at the QPS Academy, Oxley campus.

Graduating as First Year Constables (FYC), the new officers have completed 25 weeks of intensive training, preparing them for their new roles serving the community.

Police Minister Mark Ryad said police perform a vital role in the maintenance of law and order, and public safety.

“On behalf of the communities and Government of Queensland, I am grateful for the 75 FYCs who have accepted this responsibility today.

“Each has sworn they will maintain integrity, professionalism and accountability when serving and protecting the people of Queensland. Queenslanders should feel confident these standards will be met.

“They will help to create a safe environment for residents and visitors, working in partnership with local communities and other government agencies around Queensland.

“First Year Constables breathe new life into the Service with their unique experiences and enthusiasm.

“I would like to acknowledge the education and support services provided by the QPS People Capability Command and wish the 75 FYCs good luck as they embark on their careers,” the Minister said.

The recruit training program provides recruits with a high-quality foundation, so they can deliver an excellent level of service to the community and ensure their policing skills have developed to a level necessary for operational policing as First Year Constables under supervision.

Commissioner Stewart congratulated the FYCs on their graduation and announced they would commence their careers in the Brisbane, South Eastern, Central, Northern and Southern regions.

Of the 76 new police officers, 19 FYCs have been allocated to the Brisbane Region, 17 to the South Eastern Region, 15 to the Central Region, 11 to the Northern Region and 14 to the Southern Region.

“I remember my induction well and I hope this afternoon’s ceremony is a memory each FYC carries with them throughout a successful career in the QPS,” Commissioner Stewart said.

“The role of a police officer is like no other – responsible for the safety and security of Queensland.

“There is no doubt each of these new officers will experience some challenging situations, however there will also be many rewarding and humbling times.

“I wish luck to every officer in their career and feel confident they will uphold the values expected of a police officer in Queensland.”
